AVCWare 2D to 3D Converter is actually three tools in one. The 2D to 3D video converter transforms your standard 2D video files into various types of three-dimensional videos that you can play on your 3D TV or portable devices. The 3D to 3D converter adapts your 3D videos to your 2D TV by creating anaglyph images that you can enjoy with the help of a pair of red/cyan glasses. Finally, you can also “downgrade” your 3D videos to 2D files that any video player can play.
You can select any of these three tools from the main menu that displays as soon as you launch the application. The various interfaces show a very similar layout, making it sometimes a bit hard to remember where you are.
The 2D to 3D conversion utility covers all current 3D output formats available – side-by-side, top-and-bottom, and frame packing. Side-by-side and top-and-bottom options are also offered in their corresponding half-width and half-height flavors. You can customize both the display and the frame resolution, swap left and right images, and select the level of depth of the three-dimensional image. The input video files supported cover a wide range of SD and HD formats, such as AVI, MPEG, AVCHD (both MTS and M2TS), MPEG-2 HD, etc.
The 3D to 3D converter is a very useful option that will allow you to enjoy your three-dimensional videos also in a conventional 2D TV set. It will transform any 3D video frames into anaglyph images (yes, those “ancient” blurred double-images of our first films in 3D) that you can watch in standard televisions with the aid of a pair of cyan and red glasses.
Finally, the third option available is meant for those who do not have the possibility of playing their 3D videos in a 3D-ready TV set or portable device and still wish to watch them. This tool will transform them into standard bi-dimensional images that any video player can decode.
